CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- Community members in Chippewa Falls learned more about the quality of their groundwater Monday night.

Chippewa County performed a study of more than 700 private water wells in the county to determine water quality.

The first results from the study were released at the Chippewa Falls Middle School during a public hearing.

Groundwater specialists say the water fairs quite well.

“Nothing alarming”, says Kevin Masarik with UW Extension out of UW-Stevens Point. “Everything we found are typical problems that you might have for a kind of rural residential well-owner things like nitrate was probably the most common issue we found. “

The second public hearing will be held on Tuesday, March 7th at Bloomer Middle School with the presentation starting at 7pm.
